Welcome to the Sailing & Cruising Association.
We are a dynamic sailing and powerboat club for LGBT+ people, their families and friends.
Active since 1980, the Club is open to anyone who either owns a boat or just wants to get afloat with like-minded people.

RYA CLUB OF THE YEAR FINALIST 2011
The Club was selected as a finalist in RYA Club of the Year Awards in 2011. Watch the video above.
The RYA recognised the value of the ‘virtual’ club concept: “With no fixed club house, the organisation is still able to reach out to its members, both domestically and overseas and, with an extensive annual activities programme, the organisation brings like-minded sailors together in a professionally run, friendly and fun club.”
FRIENDLY INCLUSIVE SAILING CLUB
With around 450 members in the UK and beyond, with over 120 members owning boats of all shapes and sizes. All our members share a common interest in yachting (sail and power), whether it is to skipper their own boat, crew for others or get together to charter, either at home or overseas.
Experience ranges from ocean going yacht skippers to the complete novice, and from energetic youngsters to those of more mature years. We have a thriving women’s section with a growing number of female boat owners.
REGULAR MEETINGS AND EVENTS
We encourage potential members to come along to our monthly socials and events to see how the Club is run
A series of events afloat are organised (at least one a month during the season) and we try to match crew with skippers who have spare berths
Members regularly organise their own outings and invite others via the Club's Crew Match facility and Member Directory
